These young hearts and minds learn foundational truths about God with our dedicated teaching team. We have separate classrooms for each age group to really target each group’s unique developmental needs. All of our early childhood classes are in the same series, but as the kids get older they dig in deeper with more organized activities and life application. Our younger preschool kids learn the same Bible story for two weeks in a row to reinforce their knowledge and understanding. But each week, the activities change to keep the kids interested and learning more.

Our toddlers and two year olds have fun while learning about God! These young preschool children worship with song & dance, hear a teaching from God’s Word, have a small snack, color, pray and play together. Kids move into this room around 18 months, when they are walking with stability and are ready to participate in brief group activities.
Our 3’s and young 4’s have a blast with hands-on learning and fun! These kids learn about God’s Word through video-based Bible lessons, engaging worship music, games, crafts, play time & a small snack. Kids move up out of this class the summer before they start VPK. We follow the Florida school rules for age-groupings so kids that will turn 4 before September 1st move into Jr. Kids Church and those whose birthday falls after the school deadline stay in the preschool class.
On your way home, be sure to ask your child: “What did you learn today?” and “Did you have fun?” This gives your child an opportunity to share what they learned and also helps to reinforce the knowledge they gained! These kids love to teach their parents the lesson’s Need to Know Phrase and the series’ Memory Verse.
Through a partnership with our Women’s Ministry, we have many events for preschool kids and moms to connect and build relationships. [More]
